Obaseki obtains PDP nomination form


Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State on Friday evening obtained the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) nomination and expression of interest form.

Obaseki formally joined the party on Friday afternoon and has shown his interest to contest for the governorship election under the party.

He and his deputy had earlier been given a waiver by the party.

The party while granting Obaseki waiver said the action of the NWC is pursuant to Section 29(2)(b) of the PDP constitution and in the exercise of the powers of the National Executive Committee (NEC) under Section (50)(3)(b) of the PDP constitution.”

“The NWC in the exercise of the above powers has ratified the application for waiver by the ward, local government and state executives of the party in Edo state and accordingly grants waiver to His Excellency Governor Godwin Obaseki to enable him to contest the gubernatorial primary of the PDP.”


NWC has further shifted the Edo state governorship primary from an earlier slated date of Tuesday, June 23 to a new date of Thursday, June 25, 2020.

The shift, the party said, is again predicated on exigencies of party activities.
